..poor babe, poor parents!

Babies can EASILY become overtired.. which is typically from being overly stimulated.. the best remedy for this is to figure out what's doing it.. particularly before bedtime.. ie.. we realized Monroe was overly stimulated a few weeks ago easily at night, thus we regrouped what we let him do in the evenings.. we dimmed the lights, turned the tv down.. and if you slowly transition to bedtime settings.. it seems to really help. Just think of it as they can't quite "shut everything off" like we can to go to bed.. then they get mad because they ARE tired.. which makes them mad as well.. it's a viscous cycle! lol But I would try to slowly make things like the atmosphere of bedtime.. and gradually help them unwind :)

      Andrews play time is at 6:00 or 7:00 am depending on when he gets up. And play time will last two hours so he is the most stimulated at that time. Then its relaxing time and cartoon time for one hour. And he normally takes his nap around 12 noon. I know when he wants to play because he reaches out to me. And when he doesn't want to play he doesn't let me hold his hands. I try to make him tired so he goes to sleep. Because then I get to sleep too!
